Although the first day/night back on the Island was super windy and rainy, we enjoyed an incredible Saturday with a friend and neighbour of ours at Greenwich... explored the beach, did a little geocaching, picked wild raspberries, found some giant lobster claws to show my students (for Science this year), and even stumbled upon a seal carcass! We were also blessed with the opportunity to observe a flying lesson, as a mother hawk taught her two "little" ones how to swoop! It was pretty neat to watch from down below.
We took many photos to document our discoveries, which included -- in addition to the items above -- some "baby dunes" and a large mushroom.
After several hours of walking, I had a bit of a desperate hankering for pie, which was not to be found anywhere nearby, so we ended up having dinner at the pricey but delightfully delicious Inn at St Peter's, overlooking the bay. Although they did not have pie on their dessert menu, both the main courses and the deserts we ended up with more than made up for that disappointment!!!
What a lovely way to end the summer and celebrate the beginning of the new season ahead...
